Thought getting to the South Pole was a long and cold journey, then try the true center of the continent - the Pole of Inaccesibility. Just shy of 1100miles (1700km)from the coast on the highest and coldest part of the Antarctic where the height of the ice ensures you have an altitude of 3725m (its only 2800m at the South Pole!).
Henry and his team reached this point, probably the coldest and remotest point on Earth in January 2007 and thus entering the Guinness Book of Records for being the first people to reach this point under their own steam.
And Guess what - when then reached this lone outpost they were greeted by a statue of Lenin left there back in 1958 by a Soviet mechanised expedition.
